Hi @sharad7703,

Before digging into this in detail, I would strongly suggest upgrading your OJS – version 3.0.2 is quite old.

hi @asmecher

I have successfully updated to version (June 12, 2018 - 03:35 PM)

I am still facing two issues,

  1. problem in deleting articles from newly appearing incomplete submissions list pane


2. Editing already submitted article

After clicking View Submission button, following error occurs.

I have tried clearing the browser cache and even flushing out OJS cache manually from server but doesn’t works.

If I open the same in an Incognito window, and after multiple hard refresh the same link with Ctrl+F5, the page opens.

I tried to search for the errors and solution in OJS forum, but could not get any clue from there.

I am using QuckSubmit plugin to add articles to OJS.

With regards,
